The teams for the Super Bowl are set so let the hype begin. Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots will faceoff against Eli Manning, Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants. As big a part of the lead up to the game as the mass amounts of media attention is the action in Las Vegas as bets pour in. Betting isn’t just for the Super Bowl though, 50 Cent came away with $500k for picking the Giants to beat the Niners in the NFC Championship game.
Early odds have the Patriots as favorites to take Super Bowl XLVI. Favorite or not Birdman has his own theory as to why New England will hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy on February 5th and appears to be willing to drop alot of cash to back it up.
Well alright then.
During the regular season #42 (BenJarvus Green-Ellis) rushed for 667 yards and had 11 touchdowns. He had 28 yards on 13 carries in the 45-10 win over the Broncos in their divisional matchup and 68 yards and a TD in the AFC Championship game victory over the Ravens.
Talk about having confidence in your pick. And alot of money.
